You can play in the sandbox: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/WikiSandBox
or view the code of any page to use as example.
That seems like a good source for figuring out some more codes, thank

was more meaning pages to start adding content to.

Consider adding at the bottom of the page a "References" section and
list there links for further reading, but I don't think any term have to

be so textbook like... I don't know, that's just my own opinion, maybe
others don't agree?
